Announcing December 2017's ...


Please join us in congratulating our December 2017 Caregiver of the Month, Michelle Lacey! You may recall that Michelle was awarded our Team Player of the Month award for November for the wonderful care she provides to five (yes, five!) different clients each week.

In December, one of Michelle’s clients transitioned to hospice and, sadly, is near end of life. Not only has Michelle been steadfast in her compassionate care for this client, but she has been flexible with her schedule and availability as the client’s needs change and at the family’s request. We regularly hear praise about Michelle from her clients and her clients’ family members for her kindness, reliability, and excellent caregiving.

Michelle regularly volunteers to fill in for her fellow care team members, including on short-notice, has NEVER missed a clock-in or clock-out, and always turns in her care notes on time. Two of Michelle’s clients are through the PACE program and it’s absolutely critical to have care notes turned in on time and we never have to request these from Michelle because she is so timely in turning them in. In addition to all of this, and like all our best caregivers, Michelle doesn’t call off her accepted shifts. Michelle – thank you for consistently delivering the Right at Home “gold standard” of care!

As a reward for earning the Caregiver of the Month award, Michelle will be awarded a $100 bonus, given Right at Home apparel, have her name engraved on the Caregiver of the Month plaque in our office, and receive company-wide recognition.


Please join us in congratulating Latonya Wingard, our December 2017 Team Player of the Month! For several months now Latonya has had a 5:00 a.m. shift every day of the week and has NEVER missed one of these early morning shifts.

After starting her day with her 5:00 a.m. shift she provides care to several other clients throughout the week. Latonya is one of our go-to caregivers for covering emergency call-offs and regular call-offs and regularly accepts additional shifts. She is a favorite caregiver for several clients and we often receive excellent feedback on her and requests for her to return.

Latonya’s team spirit extends beyond her clients to her fellow caregivers. She offered to drive a fellow caregiver to her shifts when the other caregiver’s car was broken. And, of course, like our very best caregivers, Latonya never calls offer her accepted shifts, never misses her clock-ins or clock-outs, reports changes in her clients’ conditions to the office, and turns in her care notes each week. Latonya, thank you for your team spirit and for delivering the gold standard of care to our clients.

As a reward for earning the Team Player of the Month award, Latonya will receive a $50 bonus and company-wide recognition.


We would also like to congratulate our December 2017 All-Stars, who will be awarded a $20 gift card to Meijer and receive company-wide recognition. Right at Home All-Stars are selected based on several factors, including excellence in regularly clocking in and out on time, not calling off shifts, and providing great care to clients. Total hours worked for the month and a willingness to cover shifts and be a team player are also considered.
